Juventus will be without Mario Mandzukic for at least a fortnight after it was revealed he has suffered a hip injury.
The Croatian striker has been under medical observation for some time and the Bianconeri physios have decided he needs rest to try and cure the issue.

It means he will miss Saturday’s trip to Bologna and the midweek Supercoppa Italiana against AC Milan in Saudi Arabia.
Mandzukic is also a doubt for the clash with Chievo on January 21 and there is a fear he could still be sidelined for the return of the Champions League.
Juventus are set to face Mandzukic’s former club Atletico Madrid in the last 16 of Europe’s biggest club competition and the 32-year-old will be desperate to ensure he is fit for the first leg at the Metropolitano on February 20.Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
